Saturday, September 2, 1933

I stayed all night at Mart's. Went up to Henry's for dinner. Then Emmett, Melvin, Nellie, Dorothy and Marvin Knox all came down.

Dates of Operation: 1851 - 1997
Predecessor: Pacific Railroad
Successor: Union Pacific
Reporting Mark: MP
Headquarters: St. Louis, Missouri

The Missouri Pacific Railroad, also known as the MoPac,
was one of the first railroads in the United States west of the
Mississippi River. MoPac was a Class I railroad growing from
dozens of predecessors and mergers.

Missouri Pacific declared bankruptcy twice - once in 1915, when it
was reorganized and returned to operation as The Missouri Pacific
Railroad; and again in 1933, when it entered into a trusteeship. The
company was again reorganized and the trusteeship ended in 1956.
